Biographical details

James is a broadly trained geographer and landscape ecologist with expertise in developing bespoke modelling tools to investigate spatial ecological and socio-economic processes and their interaction. 
 

Research interests include:

  • Agent-based modelling of geographical systems 
  • Spatial modelling of ecological succession-disturbance dynamics 
  • Socio-ecological modelling for natural resource management 
  • Epistemology of modelling and simulation
 
Prior to beginning his lectureship James held a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship, also in the Department of Geography at King’s. Before this, James spent several years as Visiting Postdoctoral Associate in the Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability at Michigan State University, USA. James received his PhD in Geography in 2007, an MSc in Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Management (with Distinction), and a BSc (Hons) in Geography (First class) all from King's College London.
 
Research during these positions has been published in the Proceeding of National Academy of Sciences, Ecological Modelling, Forest Ecology and Management, Ecosystems and Landscape Ecology. James is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a long-standing member of the International Association of Landscape Ecology. He is currently an Associate Editor for Plant Ecology.
